Eye of Horus Liquid Eyeliner

In Beauty on 14/01/2014 at 10:00

Where I got it: I was given this as part of a goodie bag I got from an event by FlauntPR a while ago. Eye of Horus is available from their website, or from a list of stockists found here. The eyeliner retails for NZD$ 39.00

What I got: This is a Liquid Define liquid eyeliner from Eye of Horus. The felt tip liner gives complete control and does not have any dial to turn or buttons to push for the formula to dispense, it is purely for the formula to soak in the tip. One really interesting thing with this liquid liner is that you can use a tweezer to pull out the tip and reverse it when the tip frays or becomes blunt. This is also paraben free.

How I find it: Remove the black cap to reveal the felt tip liner, I first tried it on the back of my hand (as above picture) and the pigment looks great. After a few more tries on my hand, I used it on my eyes. To my surprise, the pigment was really bad! Then I asked for help from Eye of Horus on whether my liquid liner has dried up so fast? I then learned that I need to PRIME the tip:  Take off the cap and turn it upside down to make a ‘cup’, point the tip inside the cupped lid and bend against rim which will draw the liquid to the tip. After that, I had really good pigment and flow! The formula is really dark and really easy to control and draw close to the lash line. However, after a number of uses, the pigment starts to fade and it gets a little hard to draw a good fluid line – I presume the ink is used up already?

Overall: I LOVE liquid eyeliners because my oily eyelids and no eye liner pencil or gel liner would work on my eyes without smudging and running. This liquid liner is great, it dries really fast on my eyes and the tip is firm enough to draw a controlled line but soft enough not to tug on my skin. I don’t like touching up my makeup during the day, therefore I love how this liner stays on my eyes all day without me having to check up on it. Removal is easy with cleansing oil and/or a cleansing water (I am using Aquamoist cleansing oil and Bioderma H2O cleansing water at the moment) without the need for harsh rubbing and tugging. However, my Dolly wink liquid eyeliner is still number one because of the calligraphy tip and the pigment.

Flaunt PR Blogger Event

In Beauty on 27/09/2013 at 10:00

This week I attended the Flaunt PR‘s first ever blogger event at Flaunt PR’s lovely place in Ponsonby. With crazy 5pm city bound motorway traffic, it took me over an hour from work (Southeastern) to Ponsonby and parking took me another 15 minutes. I finally got there and it was worth it.

I was greeted with lovely Flauntees (Fiona looked stunning!), I was given my own name badge and a run down of the night’s competitions and ‘objectives’. There are plenty of social media going on, everyone was taking pictures, checking out clothes, tweeting, instagram, facebook, etc.  There was live music by Aaron Bloomfield Music (such a hottie with a very sexy voice!), cupcakes by HeySugarNZ and heaps of other bloggers!

Bellyrubzbeauty is not big on fashion because my fashion sense is not that top-notch, but don’t get me wrong I do love fashion, but not as much as beauty 🙂 Flaunt PR doesn’t only do fashion, they also do beauty! For example they have Lifestream, Eye of Horus and Qsilica.

So, a glass of Piper Heidsieck in one hand and my phone on the other hand, I set off to venture around the rooms look check out the clothes. I picked out my favourite piece from the many collections (there were many other beautiful clothes, but we were to choose one only). My pick was the Deryn Schmidt‘s 100% Silk Fluidity Skirt. The names pretty much says it all, but it just doesn’t describe the amazing ombre red/dark pink/light pink colour!

Fluidity skirt

This skirt has a flexible waist band and when I put it up against my short body, the supposedly ‘waist band’ is all the way up to my bust. So, it all became clear to me, it will be a maxi for me, not a skirt. Lovely material and lovely colours. I can imagine myself in this during spring and summer!

At the end of the night, we were all give a goodie bag to take home full of lovely treats! I devoured the HeySugarNZ cakepop the next morning hence I couldn’t take a picture of it, and I already took my Artemis green tea to work so it’s also not in my photo. I will be reviewing these individually so look out for it! Super excited with the eyeliner!
